Australia's Byron Bay Bluesfest celebrated its 25th anniversary this past June with a 4 day festival dedicated to blues and roots music. One performance that stood out as a highlight was singer Beth Hart. She joined the RocKwiz Orkestra during their set to perform "I'd Rather Go Blind," a song Etta James made famous in 1968. You can watch it above.
Beth puts in a powerful performance as she pours her heart into the song. She transforms herself into the song's character while she sings about a gut-wrenching breakup. There is heartbreak in Beth's vocals, and she displays that while captivating the audience. Guitarist Jon Nichols lends a spine tingling solo and the rest of the band provide a soulful foundation for Beth's singing.
